“Veg an’ Two Veg, please?”
When there is one last fish in an ocean,
One last cow in a field;
will the people then have a notion,
that the cost was worth more than the yield.
When there are no more Dodos in Tesco;
when a shamb shank is all that they sell;
when your mixed-up grill,
is just a mixed-up girl,
packing your biscuits in twos –
‘and the animals went
… and there were none of them left in the morning’.
